Individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) experience excessive co-morbidities and early mortality. Self-management programs have the potential to increase physical activity levels of individuals with SMI and reduce the incidence of co-morbidities. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to assess a chronic disease self-management program (CDSMP) to increase physical activity of adults with SMI measured by daily steps tracked with a pedometer. Results of data analysis indicated no statistically significant difference in steps across the six-week program...

Chromosomal insertions are genomic rearrangements with a chromosome segment inserted into a non-homologous chromosome or a non-adjacent locus on the same chromosome or the other homologue, constituting ~2% of nonrecurrent copy-number gains. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms of their formation. We identified 16 individuals with complex insertions among 56,000 individuals tested at Baylor Genetics using clinical array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)...

Chromosome 15q11q13 is among the least stable regions in the genome due to its highly complex genomic architecture. Low copy repeat elements at 15q13.3 facilitate recurrent copy number variants (CNVs), with deletions established as pathogenic and CHRNA7 implicated as a candidate gene. However, the pathogenicity of duplications of CHRNA7 is unclear, as they are found in affected probands as well as in reportedly healthy parents and unaffected control individuals. We evaluated 18 children with microduplications involving CHRNA7, identified by clinical chromosome microarray analysis (CMA)...

BACKGROUND: Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins (ACDMPV) is a rare lethal lung developmental disorder caused by heterozygous point mutations or genomic deletions involving FOXF1 or its 60-kb tissue-specific enhancer region mapping 270 kb upstream of FOXF1 and involving fetal lung-expressed long non-coding RNA genes and CpG-enriched sites. Recently, we have proposed that the FOXF1 locus at 16q24.1 may be a subject of genomic imprinting. FINDINGS: Using custom-designed aCGH and Sanger sequencing, we have identified a novel de novo 104 kb genomic deletion upstream of FOXF1 in a patient with histopathologically verified full phenotype of ACDMPV...

OBJECTIVES: Obesity and obesity-associated inflammation is central to a variety of end-organ sequelae including atherosclerosis, a leading cause of death worldwide. Although mouse models have provided important insights into the immunopathogenesis of various diseases, modeling atherosclerosis in mice has proven difficult. Specifically, wild-type (WT) mice are resistant to developing atherosclerosis, while commonly used genetically modified mouse models of atherosclerosis are poor mimics of human disease...
